When you’re leading a company that’s making a huge name for itself you can randomly start picking on your opponents right? Especially when you’re right about the reason for picking on them. So it appears that over the past week Lei Jun, the founder of Xiaomi suggested that Huawei adopts a more standardized resolution for its tablets.


Right now the core products of the companies are the Xiaomi Mi Pad and Huawei Media Pad M1, respectively. The M1 is an 8 inch IPS display device with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, while the Xiaomi Mi Pad is a 7.9 incher with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. Lei Jun’s statement wasn’t left without answer, as Yu Chengdong, the CEO of Huawei responded with a clever remark. He said that the current mainstream of tablets is 16:10 and Xiaomi went the iPad way, with 4:3 aspect.

He also said that he agrees with everyone pushing Android tablets with the same aspect ratio and resolution. The reason is to make the developer’s work easier and every experience more uniform, especially the games. One of the advantages of the iPads is that the devs only have to work with a single aspect ratio and the same resolution for newer devices. Meanwhile, on Android there’s at least 3 or 4 types of resolutions that appear on modern tablets nowadays…
